Ipswich Xmas Twilight Parade @ Marshalling Point Darling St Ipswich
Nov 17 @ 5:30 pm

IPSWICH – CHRISTMAS TWILIGHT PARADE – FRIDAY November 17th 2017

Friday November 17th, the club has been invited to participate in the Ipswich Christmas Twilight Parade through the CBD streets of Ipswich.

The magic of Christmas comes to town when the Ipswich Christmas Twilight Parade travels along the city streets. The event signifies the start of the Christmas Season and brings the Ipswich community together for an evening of fun and celebration.

This illuminated procession of colourful lights, glowing lanterns, Christmas Characters and imaginative floats will escort Santa into Ipswich City where he will join Mayor Paul Pisasale at d’Arcy Doyle Place to turn on the magical Christmas lights.

We have limited spots for vehicles (up to around 30) available and at the same time are trying to spread the range of HSV models in the parade as much as possible, and the main requirement is that the vehicles must present with the “light theme”. Some Christmas lights inside and on the car will be required in order to participate, but this can be done very inexpensively and without sacrificing your pride and joy and makes for a fantastic spectacle in a parade format.

The parade commences at 6:45pm – and concludes by 7:30pm. 

Final CRUISE and Marshalling times to be confirmed as we near the event and the organisers confirm those times.

 

We are also planning to grab a bite to eat afterwards for those that wish to join us after the conclusion of the parade.

For anyone wishing to confirm their attendance to this Friday evening, please contact Andrew Roberts on 0400 556 662 or email link above….
